With six World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelets and two World Poker Tour (WPT) championship titles, the poker legend Daniel Negreanu happens to be a dedicated vegan and stands firm against consuming meat products. On 4 July, Negreanu uploaded a tweet revealing his body transformation as vegan, taking social media by thunder!
You can lean or bulk on a vegan diet. After Rozvadov I weighted 176 lbs and leaned down to 138.6
By next year my goal is to add lean muscle and bulk back up to about 160-165
Lots of ways to get there, just saying, being vegan won’t hinder you. pic.twitter.com/bfMnJWGhW7

After his return from WSOP Europe last fall, he revealed that he weighed 176 pounds. In 9 months since the series, he lost nearly 40 pounds and is weighing in at just shy of 139 pounds. In an interview, Negreanu said “My diet’s now as good as it’s ever been, and although my veganism started out absolutely about health, it’s also become about the environment and animal cruelty. The way animals are treated and the conditions are atrocious. They’re force fed steroids, the chickens are debeaked. You end up eating sick, diseased chickens because they’re living in shit. It’s like a holocaust on animals.”
Even though the lockdown has brought us to a standstill, ‘Kidpoker’ has taken this opportunity to engage in a well balanced diet with some muscles training to transform his body. Even though being a vegan, he proves that it does not hinder in endurance or physical strength as long as the body is getting the proper nutrients and minerals it needs. The GGPoker Ambassador shared images on Instagram as well, stating that the shredding part of his diet was over and that he was looking forward to bulking up.

Shred complete! All done losing weight and looking forward to bulking back up. Went from 176 to 138.6 and plan to get back to 160 ish over the next year. It’s been a fun, easy, and enlightening journey following @fritz_horstmann vegan coaching plan. Never felt hungry. Never got bored of the food. Never felt like the workouts were hard and saw steady progression towards my goals. If you are vegan and looking for a coaching plan, I highly recommend contacting Fritz. Solid and effective. #vegan #plantbased #plantbaseddiet #shred #ripped #goals #gamechangersmovie #gamechangers
